A goat that 'hunts, eats' chicken, fish-live!

There is a news in the Indian Express, which goes on like this:

There is a female goat reared in a home in a village, Nurungel near Malappuram in Kerala which prefers meat and fish over plant diet.

The owner of the goat Sakeer says, his goat has almost made the non-veg fare its regular menu, never missing a chick that happens to pass by it. The goat has eaten about 50 chicks in the last six months, he claims.

The goat also relishes leftover of fish, served to it by Sakeer's wife.

Sakeer has bought the goat some six months back.

According to veterinarians, it could be due to some genetic disorder that Sakeer's goat made a habit of eating meat and fish. They have collected blood samples of the goat for laboratory tests.

Betel nut remains lodged in manís lung for 28 years

One more:

This one from the Hindustan Times... Betel nut remains lodged in man’s lung for 28 years.

He "was treated for tuberculosis, chest infection, pneumonia and even epilepsy. He had been undergoing treatment for more than two decades but to no avail." He "now swears never to go back to his 'chewing ways'."

It confirms the statutory warning: Chewing tobacco/betel nut is injurious to health.

Thanks shallot! Indian police foil onion heist

Quote:
Indian police have foiled a bid by robbers to make off with a truck laden with onions, in an unusual crime apparently motivated by rocketing prices of the staple food.

Three men stopped a truck on the main road from the western city of Jaipur to the capital New Delhi on Sunday on the pretence that their vehicle had been damaged in a collision.

University of Washington researchers have performed what they believe is the first noninvasive human-to-human brain interface, with one researcher able to send a brain signal via the Internet to control the hand motions of a fellow researcher.
Don't let anyone wire your head...or get them to sign an indemnity agreement first.

Maybe geek-weird is the classification...but nothing beats the goat post.

I had no clue that this was the word with an s.

But I am confused, is it zzz as in sleeping, or it sounds as zzz?
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day
